I am a potter based in Oxfordshire.
I specialise in Raku Firing
I have a passion for the ancient Japanese technique of Raku firing. The process makes each piece unique and I am never sure exactly how they are going to come out. My hand-built pieces are stylised representations of animals such as bears, sheep, birds and fish, and more recently, people. I also like making thrown pieces on the potter's wheel. Over the years I have perfected my Raku firing technique and now manage to Raku some quite delicate bowls, bottles and jars.
